Uh, no, that's not what it states. It says:

The initial policy for the use of the Debian Maintainer keyring with
the Debian archive will be to accept uploads signed by a key in that
keyring provided:

    * none of the uploaded packages are NEW
    * the Maintainer: field of the uploaded .changes file corresponds
      with the owner of the key used (ie, non-developer maintainers may
      not sponsor uploads)
    * none of the packages are being taken over from other source packages
    * the most recent version of the package uploaded to unstable or
      experimental includes the field "DM-Upload-Allowed: yes" in the
      source section of its control file
    * the most recent version of the package uploaded to unstable or
      experimental lists the uploader in the Maintainer: or Uploaders:
      fields (ie, non-developer maintainers cannot NMU or hijack packages)
    * the usual checks applied to uploads from Debian developers pass

The "DM-Upload-Allowed" and "Maintainer/Uploaders" clauses both have to be
satisfied for every upload, as do all the others.
